Jacqueline Cioffa’s The Shape of Us, Select Poems and Essays

The Shape of Us celebrates all the complexities and authentic beauty of real, everyday women. Cioffa’s essays and poems are intimate and relatable, a deep dive into the roles of being female. Unapologetic, triumphant and poignant, Cioffa doesn’t shy away from complex mother-daughter relationships, sexual and physical abuse, body shaming, insecurities, self-worth, and complicated friendships, while celebrating the empowerment and admiration of the delightful and dirty business of being female. Self-discovery, self-love, and pearls of wisdom only discovered after a life in the trenches of modeling, fame, aging, and a nervous breakdown. The Shape of Us boldly asks and answers the question, what it means to be a strong, opinionated, independent woman.

“Beauty lies in truth, hardcore, from the depths of the soul. Jacqueline Cioffa’ takes us there, brave, raw & unfiltered.” – Sandra Bernhard

“Dedicated to all the women who have made me feel worthy of the sweet, soft miracle it is to be born a girl, in these fast and loud, masculine modern times.” – Jacqueline Cioffa
